The Scorching’ Squirrel-A-Thon is a trail race that zigzags back and forth through Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center’s 1200 acres located just 10 miles west of Little Rock.  There is a 5k option, a 10-mile loop option, and a 20-mile option that repeats the 10-mile loop.  The 2 longer options have aid stations that you pass through several times.  One is a manned or womaned station at miles 5, 9, 14, and 19.  The other is an unmanned water station at miles (7 and 17).  There will be refreshments at the end with a cookout beginning at 11 am at the pool.  Please bring stuff to share although Fleet Feet and Ferncliff will provide burgers and hot dogs.  No glass containers, please.  No pets.  This is a great race for heat training and for trying out trail running with the shorter distances.  There is quite a bit of incline throughout the course and in true squirrel fashion, there is some darting back and forth.  Along the course is an optional 120 foot enclosed slide!

All the distances end back at the start of the race.  The pool will be open after the race.  It has a large covered pavilion and runners can cool off and enjoy some food and refreshments.  There are lots of changing stalls.

All runners that register before 8.1.18 receive a t-shirt on race day.  Any proceeds from the event will support Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center.  If you’d like to reserve lodging the evening before the event, contact Ferncliff Camp and Conference Center.  www.ferncliff.org  501-821-3063
